This book describes how an invasive alga was released into the Mediterranean and details the political story of why it was allowed to spread The alga caulerpa taxiflora was first discovered growing under the windows of the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco in 1989 When Meinesz saw the alga he approached the director of the museum and was told that the alga being tropical in nature would never survive the winter However it did indeed survive the winter flourished and over the next few years spread beyond Monaco to the coast of France Spain and as far away as CroatiaAlthough one section of the appendix describes the biology of the alga the vast majority of the book is devoted to documenting the various political battles that the author fought to try to convince the authorities to take action against the spread of the alga Some of the behind the scenes tales of how the academic publishing establishment works were uite illuminating After reading this book I will also be rather skeptical when I come across scientific articles in the popular press especially newspapers since Meinesz points out how often reporters got the details wrong or pulled other facts out of context When I picked up this book I was interested in learning the scientific and environmental implications of an invasive species but that s not the focus of this book

Positive This book provides a very detailed account of the history of the invasion of Caulerpa taxifolia I recommend this book to anyone who is concerned about nature environmentalists any students of biology or anyone who has an interest in biodiversity issues As a student of biology I can say that he is completely correct in his assessment of nonreductionist scientific pursuits ecology etc The reader feels involved in the action as dry as it may be and cheers Dr Meinesz as he time and time again evidences the incompetency of the general public and government in dealing with scientific matters It s an excellent book overallNegative It is rather slow reading It could have been told better The story could float easily if there were anecdotes

This book should wake up anyone who still believes that clear scientific truth will automatically change the way that governments make decisions Consider it the ocean side euivalent of Halberstam s classic The Best and the Brightest and an excellent complement to Barbara Tuchman s The March of Folly Dr Meinesz was among the few and leading French scientific voices who saw and what s cared about the epidemic spread of a tropical green algae along the world s most expensive coastline the Riviera He shows how the famous Oceanographic Museum at Monaco not only caused the problem with its careless handling of an exotic species but how the Director s disinformation cover up campaign spread faster than the noxious seaweed itself And it did not help that this environmental mayhem was started under the watch of famed oceanographer Jacues Cousteau the preceding museum director One of the most striking things one learns is how diverse and complex and ultimately useless the French bureaucracy is that is supposed to be protecting their coastlines and marine environments A scary story that might have done better with a carefully chosen title
